Free After-School Group Tutoring Program
Once again, Everyone Reading and the Museum of the City of New York will offer a FREE, intensive summer program for current third graders who will be attending fourth grade in September. Applicants must have been born in 2009 and be currently struggling with basic reading skills, such as phonics and fluency. Our goal is for students to catch up in their reading skills and get a head start on the fourth-grade social studies curriculum. Catching Up and Getting Ahead will take place at the Museum of the City of New York, 1220 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10029, at 103rd Street, June 28 and July 9 – 27, Monday-Friday, from 12:30 to 3:30 pm. Each child will have 90-minutes of small-group instruction in the SPIRE reading system with additional help in phonological awareness and penmanship with an experienced teacher and 90 minutes of hands-on projects, such as photography and model making, related to the geography and history of New York City. The SPIRE literacy intervention program provides very effective, multi-sensory, sequential, structured instruction in phonics and related word attack skills.
STUDENTS MUST ATTEND EVERY DAY TO BENEFIT FROM THE PROGRAM. Absence or lateness will be cause for dismissal.
To be sure that we accept students who will benefit from the program, we will schedule a screening at Everyone Reading during April and May.
To request and application, please contact Laura Guerrero, Lguerrero@everyonereading.org. She will send you an application and schedule a screening.
